Life as Potential
In the gallery October 4 – 29, 2018
“The most effective representation of the ideas of life’s path and potential can be found in a simple tree branch. In the process of development, it selects a path out of multitude and each choice contains new alternatives. I started noticing branching structures all around me. A very straightforward observation, that became the impetus behind the ‘Transfusion’ series, was focused on the fact that everything — from a body to a culture — contains such branching structures, both literally and symbolically. To me it was an evidence of a transfused potential, that seems to be the foundational quality of our reality.” – Ana Maria Gower
